Nectar Mattress Review Breakdown
The Nectar Mattress begins with a 3-inch comfort layer of memory foam. The medium firm (6) feel means this mattress won’t hug the body as closely as some of its softer counterparts, but most sleepers will still notice even contouring throughout the body. The foam is infused with cooling gel designed to help the mattress sleep cool.
A 2-inch transitional layer of soft polyfoam is positioned beneath the memory foam. This component is intended to provide extra reinforcement and prevent sleepers from sinking too deeply beneath the surface. The support core contains a 7-inch layer of high-density polyfoam to stabilize the entire mattress.
The Nectar Mattress is encased in a cover made from a blend of polyester, nylon, and polyethylene. A circular knit gives the fabric a soft hand-feel, while the nylon makes the material fairly durable and resistant to tearing.

Motion Isolation: Memory foam beds typically excel at motion isolation compared to other mattress types, and the Nectar Mattress is no exception. The foam layers absorb movement whenever someone adjusts their sleep position or gets in and out of bed, which reduces the amount of transfer across the surface.
As a result, those who share the bed with someone should experience few – if any – disruptions from their sleep partner’s movements. The mattress is also completely silent.
Pressure Relief: The Nectar Mattress should provide very good pressure relief for most sleepers who weigh 230 pounds or less. The memory foam conforms evenly to cushion the shoulders and hips, align the spine, and decrease pressure for side sleepers. The transitional and support layers also help to maintain a flat, even surface for back and stomach sleepers in this weight range.
Side sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may also find the Nectar Mattress comfortable. However, back and stomach sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds will probably find the mattress too soft and may sink excessively around the midsection. This can lead to added pressure in sensitive areas.
Temperature Control: The foam layers may absorb and trap body heat, causing the Nectar Mattress to feel uncomfortably warm. This is especially true for people who run exceptionally hot in bed, as well as back and stomach sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds because they will likely sink into the mattress more than other sleepers.
That said, the mattress offers better temperature regulation than many competing memory foam models. The comfort layer is infused with cooling gel intended to draw heat away from the body, and the cover is fairly breathable. People who typically find foam mattresses too warm may find this model more comfortable.
Edge Support: Edge support is another area where the Nectar Mattress slightly outperforms against similarly constructed competitors. Owners will likely notice some sinkage when they sleep near the edges of the mattress or get in and out of bed, but the medium firm feel prevents the excessive loss of support you may notice on a softer foam mattress.
Couples will probably notice less reinforcement during sex, which can confine them to the middle of the mattress, and people who weigh more than 230 pounds are most likely to sink too much when sitting along the perimeter. Other sleepers should experience fewer issues related to edge support.
Ease of Movement: Ease of movement is fair at best for the Nectar Mattress. The memory foam responds slowly, and this can make it harder to change positions or move across the surface without sinking too deeply
People who weigh less than 130 pounds will have a relatively easy time moving on the mattress, but anyone who weighs more will probably struggle a bit. This is a common issue with all-foam beds, so the Nectar Mattress has earned an average rating for the category.
Sex: Every couple has different preferences regarding the best mattress for sex. The Nectar Mattress provides cushioning and even conforming to ensure decent traction, which can make sex more comfortable for people who enjoy maintaining the same position for prolonged periods. Low noise potential also makes the mattress more discreet compared to beds with coils that squeak and creak.
However, the mattress will not be particularly comfortable for couples who prefer springier, more responsive surfaces. The foam layers may sink and make changing positions difficult. A lack of strong edge support may also force couples into the middle of the mattress. Comparatively, beds with sturdier perimeters allow couples to use more of the surface.
Off-Gassing: Mattresses with foam layers often emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), tiny particles that carry a noticeable chemical smell. VOCs are considered relatively harmless but the odors can be quite strong and unpleasant. While all-foam beds are usually the strongest offenders, the Nectar Mattress produces less off-gassing odor. The smells should completely dissipate within 24 to 72 hours after the mattress is removed from its shipping box.
Nectar Mattress Policies and FAQs
Now, we would like to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the Nectar mattress.
Is Nectar a good mattress?
We would definitely say the Nectar is a good mattress, but it is going to be better for certain types of sleepers. Side sleepers, couples, and those who like a memory foam feel are going to find it to be a good fit. At the same time, stomach sleepers and those who like a firmer, more responsive mattress should look elsewhere.
How long do Nectar mattresses last?
This depends on the weight of the sleeper and how often they use the mattress, but the Nectar mattress should stay in good shape for between five and seven years. Those who are worried about the mattress sagging too quickly should have their minds eased by the Forever Warranty.
Do you need a box spring with the Nectar mattress?
According to the company, the Nectar mattress does not require a box spring. If a bed does require a box spring, it will still work well with the Nectar.
Is Nectar or Purple better?
Neither mattress is better, but they are better for different types of people. The Nectar is better for side sleepers, fans of memory foam, and lightweight sleepers; the Purple is better for combination sleepers, larger people, and those who want something more durable.
Where can I try a Nectar mattress?
You can try a Nectar mattress in select retailers. If you don’t live near one of these retailers, you can try the Nectar at home for 365 nights.
